, wisconsin has not gone for a republican since ronald reagan back in 1984. how much do you think that romney will be helped by the big organization that governor scott walker had to build to hold off the recall vote last june? >>guest: well, it is helpful. we have a strong ground game here and it is interesting that the most recent rasmussen poll was dead even 49 to 49 and those that have made up their mind or for sure will vote, governor romney got 51 percent versus president obama at 41 or 48. yesterday, the issue benghazi is bubbling up. people are demanding answers from the administration. that will have a big impact in the state of wisconsin. >>chris: we will get to benghazi later in the discussion. senator udall i was surprised to learn close to 80 percent of voters in your state will vote before election day and romney catch says they are winning in absentee requests and early voting and they say they are will swinging the suburbs around denver that went for obama four years ago. >>guest: good morning, chris. we have a great ground game here in colorado. you are right, about 80 percen
.d.p., it is less bad news. after the wisconsin debate, wisconsin saw governor romney is a man of integrity and intelligence, a man with a plan, unlike president obama who has no proposals to save social security or medicare or unlike the democrats in the senate who have not pass add budget in three years. people want real leadership. that is what they see in governor romney and paul ryan, someone with the courage to put forward real proposals. >>chris: now, the economic recovery, even though unemployment is down to 7.8 percent, no president has been re-elected with unemployment this high since fdr back in 1940, no president has been re-elected with growth this low since they began tracking g.d.p. in 1930. those are strong headwinds. >>guest: yes, but we need to also look at where we were and where we have come. we all remember how bad things were four years ago, losing 800,000 jobs a month and we are at five million plus jobs, steady job growth, increases and the g.d.p. numbers, i would like to see them higher but compare america to the rest of the world we are the shining shot in the whol
men on the ticket, obama, biden, ryan and romney are in wisconsin because it is that tight. and if wisconsin goes for mitt romney, that will be a shocking development. republicans lost the state by 14 points four years ago. >> geraldo: ohio. everyone is talking about the buckeye state. what about ohio, scott? >> ohio is very close. showing it tied right now. that is a state again where the democrats actually think they had the edge on the ground. almost all of the polling has shown anything from a tie to a slight obama lead. this is a state that democrats are very confident they can hang on to. the president really needs to win both ohio and wisconsin if he wants to keep his job. romney needs to win one of those two. >> geraldo: iowa? >> iowa, another tie state. this this midwest that is become the pattern. the des moines register came out and for the first time in decades endorsed the republican candidate. why? the economy is the key issue. and in all of these states what we are starting to see is voters are saying they trust romney more than obama when it comes to the eco
portraying governor romney was shattered and when wisconsin saw it, he was a man with integrity and intelligence and had a plan unlike president obama, who has no ways to save social security or focus and unlike the senate, there has been no leadership in three years and, ryan paul, has the courage to put forward real proposals. >> chris: let me, senator warner talk about the economic recovery, weak as it is in historical terms, the fact is, even though, as i say, unemployment is down to 7.8%, no president has been reelected with unemployment this high since fdr back in 1940, no president has been reelected with growth this low since they started tracking gdp back in 1930. those are strong historical head winds. >> yes, chris, but i think we need to also look at where we were and where we have come. i mean, we all remember how bad things were four years ago, losing 800,000 jobs a month and are net positive, 5 million plus jobs and the gdp numbers, i'd like to see them higher but compare america to the rest of the world, we are the one shining spot in the whole world, look at us
report." wifeless than two weeks to go, president obama and mitt romney hit the campaign trail in florida, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, and virginia. polls continue to show the race in a dead heat nationally, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowing into that side. that's romney. we have seen him improve his performance in independents and womens. you can call it what you want and the media contends it isn't momentum but i bet the president's campaign is wishing they that that momentum. >> to that point, yes, the obama campaign wishes it had some of that momentum because i tell you what really going on. the president is flatlining. >> i think he hit a ceiling for two re
will carry wisconsin and it will be a difficult reached for romney. >> a virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one pnt or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, because another shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will be very important, but much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state did it only became a presidentially democratic relatively recently. >> when bartlet came along. "west wing." >> unless he gets a surge that covers most of the states, it if he loses ohio and iowa or ohio and wisconsin, he has to run the table in everyone. >> you get confused unless you are i just keep trying to figure out the permutations. everybody agrees that the path is clear and simpler for obama and romn. it is ccbc the combination -- >> a lot of talk about potential ties. >> which i think i
campaign. what people in wisconsin what is moving the needle here is they recognize mitt romney is an individual who when faced with a legislature controlled 85% by democrats was actually able to work with the democrats. look at his record versus president obama who has been totally unable to work with divided government in washington, d.c. >> chris: on the question of abortion, though, isn't that -- >> it is just -- >> chris: go ahead. >> i mane chris it is not even an issue here in wisconsin. it doesn't even move the radar at all. what people are concerned about like i said yesterday it was unbelievable how many people came up to me demanding answers on benghazi. i had a father of a marine a young marine saying listen, i want to know who commander in chief is and what orders he gave and what didn't he give. that is the question on the table for the last ten days is is what happened in benghazi. abortion doesn't even show up. >> chris: i promise we will get to benghazi in a moment. first i do want to give senator warner a chance to talk about the women's issue on the one hand o
, wisconsin and ohio. if romney wins both florida and virginia. the obama campaign said they're ahead in iowa right now, this could make some difference in the end and it reinforces the argument that romney is making. he's best positioned to make the bipartisan compromises america needs. >> just over a week to go and it just got even more interesting. george stephanopoulos, thank you. george has a huge show this morning, his guests include stephanie cutter from the obama campaign and the former house speaker newt gingrich. >>> now, a check of other top mornings. >> there's other news. >>> good morning, everyone. another potential attack on a u.s. embassy may have been thwarted. police in indonesia said they have arrested on attacks, including the american embassy in jakarta. >>> new details on the tragic story of the new york city nanny who allegedly killed two young children. friends and relatives said that nanny had been unraveling in recent months. ortega is still in the hospital with self-inflicted knife wounds. >>> the young man known as the victim number one in the jerry sandusky sexual
for romney. >> i would also pick wisconsin, in 2010 when the country moved to the right no state moved more emphatically to the right than wisconsin. they tried to recall the governor and the governor to fight that created a huge infrastructure that stayed in place. wisconsin has voted democratic in five consecutive presidential elections. bush lost it by two tenths of a percent. five straight times, this could be the year when the republicans win there now. tammy baldwin and tommy thompson ran negative campaigns. the coal state hates both of them. therefore, the neutralizing their negatives this may be the real bell weather. to underscore that point, they're running ads in minnesota for wisconsin. >>> thank you very much. austin and gwen are standing by to answer your questions on twitter. >>> now, we pause to honor our fellow americans who serve and sacrifice. this week, the pentagon released the names of four soldiers killed in afghanistan. >>> and we'll be back in a moment with the latest on hurricane sandy from sam champion. spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got hel
in ohio, the republican mom knee that will also be campaigning in iowa, wisconsin, and new hampshire through tuesday. speaking of iowa, mitt romney is getting a boost from that state. did you check the des moines register just last night. this is just in here. they have now officially endorsed the republican candidate. a strong record of achievement in both the private and public sectors and ran a successful business that turned around failing companies. keep many mind, they endorsed barack obama four years ago and also the morning times, they're going with president obama here. the newspaper published an op ed just this morning. as much of an endorsement as the president -- as a rebuke of republicans really. "the times" writes that mr. obama has impressive achievements despite the implaquable wall of refusal provided by congressional republicans so intent on stopping him they risked pushing the nation into depression, held its credit rating hostage, and hobbled economic recovery." more on politics in just a bit. >>> to hawaii now where the islands are under the tsunami advisory. the
are giving that to governor romney. see how this scenario plays out. the president would have to take the state of michigan where he is up by four points. let's give those 15 points to him. wisconsin where he is up by two. this is one of the most -- obviously one of the most important states. ohio where the president is up bywo points in a pivotal, obviously as we have been talking about and will be talking about for 11 days, ohio critical we will give that to the president. pennsylvania. the president is up five points. adding another 20 points to his electol count. new hamphire, those four points we are going to give. up by just one point. if that were to happen, as you can see, 269-269, we have a time. so what do we do in the event that this occurs? by the way, this is entirely possible. let's go old school. back to the blackboard. and if no candidate receives a majority it triggers wh is called a contingent, and there are, i assure you. it is selldom in the house of representatives, and in that case which is the president of the united states, the house would choose the president
on those promises. i think that's a big deal. wisconsin, i'll be there tomorrow. wisconsin, i think, right now the momentum is with governor romney. we've done a whole lot of winning as republicans in wisconsin. you look at colorado. >> let me stop you in wisconsin because i want to read you something that david axelrod told "the daily caller." >> we expected wisconsin to be closer than last time. it is in our column now, and it's going to be in our column. >> yeah, well, he can say whatever he wants to say. i mean, they haven't been able to win in wisconsin for a long time. they claim that the obama machine was out during the walker recall. we basically crushed them in wisconsin. i have seen firsthand the difference between obama's rhetoric on their ground game and the reality, and the reality is they're not as good as they think they are, but overall besides the ground game talk, this is about the president's policies, the current state of the economy. it is a complete disaster. only one person has been very clear on a plan to get this economy back on track, and that's been governor romn
. i rather be romney. it gives hum a shot at state that is obama. wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire and maybe even nevada can get back in there because the republican candidate is doing well. that's the way you play with the map. if you have to cede ohio. you are cashing in and realization that for a president who got 56 percent of the female vote as the nonincumben in a two gender race is significant. >> doug, kelly ann mentioned new hampshire and ohio and iowa and wisconsin. and so, so, obama's barely ahead in some of those state not at 50 percent. that is dangerous for the territory. >> it is and that's why you will see governor that obama is going to raise questions about romney next week because it is very hard if not impossible for him to get 50 percent. he has to discourage the undecided from voting for romney. that is a win for the president if they stay home. he will need tv effort and plus trying to persuade the undecided not to support romney. >> and governor, may i just add the states are significant for another reason. we look through the 2008 pris'm. in the states that
's a credible way -- ohio is very important and would make it harder for romney to win if he didn't win ohio but if he takes wisconsin and colorado, he's got more votes than he would in ohio. so it would -- it's going to be fascinating to watch. also, iowa comes into play, another close state. the des moines register endorsed romney, the first time they endorsed a republican candidate for president since richard nix non1972 so that's a big deal. >> got a gut feeling? >> yeah, but i save that for las vegas. >> all right, chris. good to see you. it's going to be a fascinating tuesday night in nine days. >> you bet. can't wait. >> absolutely. for more on chris's interviews with senators from the key battleground states, "fox news sunday's" got them for the latest upcoming election discussions. republican senators rob portman, ron johnson, senators warner and udal ll. fox news sunday has it all at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. eastern here on fox as we gear up for the final stretch. >> we better gear up for hurricane sandy because she, i believe this one is a she, is on a crash course for the jersey s
. this morning, we hear about it all from key figures on the ground. all important ohio. can romney win the white house without it? we'll ask the state republican governor, john casic. wisconsin governor scott walker and colorado's democratic governor, john. analysis on what will tip the scales in this tight presidential race. from the round table, from msnbc, rachel maddow, new york times columnist david brooks, washington post columnist, former ceo of hewlett packard, carly. our chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. >>> announcer: from nbc news in washington, "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good morning on this sunday. as if it wasn't enough to have this tight race, we have inically mat weather bearing down on the east coast. hurricane sandy, a superstorm. it could affect 50 million people along the east coast. we have all of this covered including the political ramifications of the storm in the coming days. we are nine days to go until the election. i want to go live first to asbury bark on the new jersey shore where we go through the latest, including what you were talking abo
the romney campaign sees this? >> i think you have to think about wisconsin. wisconsin and ohio -- >> this is the big question. >> if romney wins florida, north carolina, virginia and new hampshire and colorado, which are the states where he's been leading to tie in the relatively recent polls. he has to win either ohio or wisconsin. if he wins wisconsin and loses ohio, he could get to 270 that way. they are important. >> if he wins wisconsin -- again it was won by john kerry in 2004, comfortably by barack obama in 2008. it would be a swing back for wisconsin. paul ryan is on the ticket. there's some thinking there and the polling is relatively close. he would also -- if he didn't win ohio, the run of all the swing states, colorado, virginia, north carolina, florida, et cetera. >> wisconsin is interesting. we neglected wisconsin, it's very important. wisconsin is a state where we had this recall election in the past. the ground game for the republicans is very strong. a lot of things about obama has been the ground game they have developed since 2008. it's been so efficient. so
and goes to wisconsin after that, but then it is sort of a guessing game. a senior romney adviser was asked by reporters earlier today, what are you doing in terms of watching this storm? they said, that's basically what they are doing, assessing where they are going next based on this campaign schedule that's been thrown up in the air. don, what is also interesting is the optics of the final days of this campaign. will the president get out there to survey storm damage instead of campaigning? at the same time, what will the weather do to early voting. that's something we are looking at in the final days. obviously, the obama campaign has expressed concern about that. we saw david axelrod on cnn say to the union earlier today that may have an effect on their campaign. so, don, we'll be watching all of this heading into the final days. it is one of those situations, 2008 was a wave year for the democrats, 2010 was a wave year for the republicans, the wave this year is from hurricane sandy. >> it will be interesting to see how this plays out and how this affects the election. if people don't
there endorsed romney. the first time that newspaper has endorsed a gop candidate. how big of a deal is that? >> iowa is a key state. it's part of barack obama's midwestern fire wall. he needs to win iowa, wisconsin and ohio if governor romney wins both florida and virginia and this could have an effect. it could affect independent swing voters in iowa right now. the obama campaign says they are ahead in iowa right now. this could make some difference in the end, and it reinforces the argument that romney is making headway. he is best positioned to make the bipartisan compromises america needs. that echoes romney's message in these closing days. >> just over a week to go and it just got even more interesting. george stephanopoulos, thank you. george, by the way, has a huge show this morning. his guests include stephanie cutter from the obama campaign and the former house speaker newt gingrich. >>> now let's get a check of the morning's other top news. there is other news happening. >> hi, good morning, everyone. >>> another potential attack on a u.s. embassy may have been thwarted and police
events scheduled for today in virginia. instead romney will be campaigning in ohio and wisconsin tomorrow. this afternoon, romney and his running mate power ryan held a rally in toledo, ohio, governor romney touting his business experience, repeatedly promising to bring back jobs. >> i didn't just read about small business, i didn't just study it in school. i lived small business. i know what it's like to start a business. i want to use the experience to help people get more businesses started, get more jobs, get higher take-home pay. >>> as we mentioned, the president in washington, d.c. earlier today. but he will try to leave for florida this afternoon. we're told the obama campaign canceled scheduled events this week. in northern virginia. of course there was supposed to be the rally with bill clinton and prince william county. canceling an event in colorado springs. colorado due to the hurricane as well. meanwhile in battleground ohio, the race now officially a dead heat. this is the latest poll from the cincinnati inquirer and ohio news organization. it shows the president and govern

hours. florida, ohio and wisconsin. he wanted to be in virginia, he wanted to be in colorado. now take a look at governor romney's schedule, david. when you look it's ohio today. it was supposed to be virginia today. but he moved all of those events to ohio because of the storm. and then look where he is spending his monday -- it's the midwest. and david, that's where they feel like they have to pick offer a couple of states, no the just ohio, ohio plus something else. >> it's interesting, as i talked to the romney campaign at the etched of the week, they were emphasizing the momentum argument. they feel the debates gave him a second look in such a way that he can carry that through election day. the obama folks say look at the electoral math. we could be in for quite a finish here, if they're both right. >> they could be both right. we've talked about the popular vote thing. we've seen polling out today. if you look at the president's lead, for instance, on the west coast in california -- the lead has been cut in half. i've done some math, can you see where mitt romney makes up some s

: is there a national positive for him on the auto front or is it just in a couple of states, wisconsin, obviously michigan, those kind of mi western industrial statse? >> coal being part of the state that's doing well. obviously that message will play better to romney there than to obama. but nevertheless, to back out for a second a look at the economy, generally speaking, you have states important swing states where the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. but the recent set of data we see a brightening of consumer attitudes. we see consumer sentiment and surprisingly at a five-year high despite historically high gas prices. despite a lot of the concerns that this is our expressing. we've seen really weak investment and orders in particular. so whether consumer sentiment will continue to hold up and importantly whether that will actually suggest that voters are in a better mood than even the economic figures suggest, could give obama some more support than you might otherwise see and what's relatively weak period of growth. >> whoever it is elected in november is going to be loo
romney is that unless he real gets surge that covers a lot of these states, if he loses ohio and virginia, let's say, or ohio and ioiowa or ohio and wisconsin, he has to run the table on the other ones. >> you will get confused unless you are a jockey, but everybody seems agree that the path is clearer and simpler for obama than for romney, even though t. is such close race. it is easier to see the combinatn that gets -- >> a lot of talk about potential es in the electoral college. >> which i think is our reach, but let's be blunt about it, the momentum is in romney's direction has been since the first debate. nina's mention of new hampshire -- their only three states from 2000 to 2004 from bu-court to bush-carry -- bush-gore to bush- kerry. that is how clely thdivided the country was then and it remai now. >> there is a different view, that the so-called romney surge is a myth when you look ofof the battleground states and the national polls. hardly a point w where you can say that the momentum has carried romney ahead of bararack obama. >> romney was dead in the water afte
